The Bionic Tower
is an uber
tower to be built in Shanghai
sometime this century
(21st). It's designers are apperently european
, and the tower itself is being built to overcome the massive overcrowding
of Shanghai. It will house aboutly one hundred thousand (100000
) people (!!). It will be 300 story
s, and 3700 feet high. (approx).
There are plans for 368 lifts (elevators..), an artificial lake to absorb tremors, a 3000 feet wide concrete structure at the bottom and the first inhabitants could move in as soon as the first level is done. It would be 15 years before the building work above them actually stopped though.
It looks like a zeppelin airship, slammed into the ground, and then streched a little.
